Donald W. Shriver, Jr.

Oxford University Press

Foreigners still wonder if Germans can really be trusted to remember the evils of Nazism. This chapter documents the array of public measures which the country has taken in the past 60 years to educate its upcoming generations of citizens about those evils, with the hope, “Never again”. Documented here are the Holocaust memorials, anniversaries, museums, and school texts that have qualified Germany now as having established a “culture of memory” with few equals elsewhere in the world.

Keywords:   Holocaust, Nazism, democracy, public mourning, nationalism, racism, repentance
